Weight loss surgery is a life changing experience. This makes the field of bariatric medicine extraordinarily gratifying. It's so exciting to be able to offer patients hope after many years of failed diets.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
After publishing two useful infographics, L.A. Bariatrics, a Los Angeles based weight loss program published a clear and succinct graphic with the title My Weight Loss Surgery Options.
Those who decide to undergo weight loss surgery will have a brief image about surgical weight loss options and after carefully studying each procedure they can easily „weigh” their options by consulting the infographic.
Sadly obesity has become an epidemic in the U.S. and it is one of the leading preventable causes of death in America. L.A. Bariatrics published this infographic with the accent on the word preventable, presenting procedures, which are effective and offer long-term weight loss as well as improvement in several weight related illnesses such as diabetes type two, heart conditions, respiratory disorders, infertility, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.
The graphic presents briefly two of the most commonly performed surgical weight loss options: the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and the adjustable gastric banding as well as two new procedures: sleeve gastrectomy and gastric plication.
The graphic offers statistic information on the number of patients who experienced resolution of their health condition with the first two procedures as well as the average excess weight loss after the first 12-18 months after the same two procedures.
Dr. Jeremy Korman the medical director at L.A. Bariatrics said: “Weight loss surgery is a life changing experience. This makes the field of bariatric medicine extraordinarily gratifying. It's so exciting to be able to offer patients hope after many years of failed diets.”
